Want involvement? Don’t know where to start?

Each year at this time people are nominated (or nominate themselves) to get more involved with the neighborhood. The Rose Park Neighborhood Association can have up to 12 members; meets monthly plus each board member gets involved with one or more actions or projects. Involvement!

Interested? We hope so. Make sure you are a current member of RPNA – if not go to our website and join. 

Who can join? Residents, property owners and business owners in the Rose Park Neighborhood: Cherry to Redondo: 4th to 10th.

And then, email to be nominated. And finally, come to the July 22nd Sunday in the Park when the elections occur.

First RPNA Board meeting will be in August, Board meetings are the first Thursday of each month at 7pm at St. Matthews.

Areas of involvement:

  • Beautification
  • Communication
  • Fundraising
  • Health and Safety
  • Civic Engagement
